Bees and Apple Trees
The apple trees have finished flowering but while they bloomed I was happy to find a diversity of bees about pollinating them.
Mostly these little digger and mason bees buzz about from bloom to bloom.
Among the mix this year I was delighted to finally see some of my honeybees joining in.
A Hover Fly was also dabbling about. Along with minor pollinator their larva are predators of aphids.
